The new report analysing the findings of the second European Survey of Enterprises on New and Emerging Risks (ESENER-2) highlights the fact that health and psychosocial risks are not as well managed as conventional risks.
Enterprises which benefit from strong commitment by their management, worker representation and available resources (both financial and human) are distinguished by far better implementation of good occupational safety and health practices. This is especially true for the largest enterprises, and those which operate in the production and manufacturing sectors. However, even in these enterprises, emphasis is still mainly placed on conventional risks, rather than on factors related to health or psychosocial aspects.
The report identifies a synergy between current policy and practice on the EU level, which makes it possible to exploit – and consolidate – the progress made regarding OSH practice in recent years.
